New Years on Mt Olympus by FLY

Description
My partner and I spent our first holiday together in Cypress. This is a true account of what happened when we awoke on New Year's morning at a lovely B&B at the top of the mountain.

Bringing this song to life could only have been accomplished by the true teamwork of...

Freddy
L
Yves

Thanks to you both for being just as you are... wonderful!

Lyrics
Verse
The new year was welcomed by the rising sun
A copper caress and the morning had begun
One could imagine the kingdoms above
With Aphrodite spreading her powers of love

Could it be through sleepy eyes the angry gods awoke
And pulled right in the heavy clouds to shield her rays of hope
Then the battle once began, the mythical war of light
The shining sun against the rain and this is what took flight…

Chorus
It was raining on one side of the balcony
With a colorful rainbow painted on the parallel sky
Oh it was raining, raining – on just one side.

It was raining on one side of the balcony
With a colorful rainbow painted, trying to hide
The balance between black and white
The reality – of light!

-Lead-

Bridge
It was early morning as we stretched and yawned
But the glow on the balcony beckoned on
It was really too early to rise on New Year’s Day
But we were compelled by the golden play

Our naked bodies snaked across the room
A fine strand of thread in the siren’s loom
Beckoned to the balcony to behold the light
An amazing memory was this sight..

Delicate 60s beauty...
for some reason, the music and your beautiful voice makes me think immediately here of Joan Baez, Great music, super lyrics and imagery, and excellent singing. Lovely thing to come back to Macjams to and hear!
